Program in Teaching

Anna Morrisson

  • Class of 2007
  • English Major
  • Certified through Mississippi Teacher Corps

After graduating from Williams in 2007, Anna quickly joined the Mississippi Teacher Corps, a two-year teacher training and certification program that offers a full scholarship for a Master’s degree in education and a job placement in a “critical-needs” school district in Mississippi. She spent the summer after graduation in an intense summer training program run through the University of Mississippi. Anna has enjoyed her time teaching high school English at a large, rural public school. She loves “knowing that she is truly having an immediate impact on improving my community and changing the world!” Like many other teachers, Anna encourages undergrads to get some experience and exposure during their time at Williams to witness “how jam-packed a day of teaching really is, and to see the differences between the elementary, middle and high school teaching.”
